FUSE 21-3: Summer 1998


It seems appropriate to preface any given interview with a caveat in the spirit of Magritte: This is not a spoken conversation. An interview is a translation from spoken to written word and ultimately must succeed in the latter form. As in any good translation, literalness is subordinate to conveying the intent of the original. Also, as in translation, something is lost along the way. As yet no system of notation has been devised to convey the telling pauses, false starts, differing tones of voice, smiles and all the other non-linguistic signs that are the property of spoken conversations.
